KENTUCKY (WFIE) - The Ellis Park Derby winner, Art Collector, will have to miss the Kentucky Derby this weekend due to a foot issue.

According to the horse’s trainer, the colt nicked the bulb of his left front hell while galloping Monday at Church Hill Downs.

The trainer said that due to the strict medication rules, the horse could not be treated with an anti-inflammatory this close to the race.
